Cuxhaven expands capacity

July 1 - Construction of a new ro-ro berth has begun at the Port of Cuxhaven in Germany.

On completion, berth 9.3 will have a 115 m long by 55 m wide ramp capable of handling heavy lift shipments weighing over 1,000 tonnes, according to port operator Niedersachsen Ports.

Niedersachsen Ports began developing Cuxhaven as an offshore hub in 2008, with the construction of berths 8 and 9 - which will have a total quay length of 1,340 m and offer water depths of up to 11.6 m.

The upgraded port will also include a 20 ha factory area, capable of storing several wind turbine components. All surfaces and quays have been designed to offer heavy lift capability.

HLPFI reported on June 17 that construction of Siemens' new manufacturing facility for offshore wind energy equipment had also begun in Cuxhaven.
